How to Get There
The hotel is a nice mix of modern and classic, with a lovely family atmosphere. The manager and his staff made everything to make us comfortable. The rooms have a decent size and are comfortable (ours had a beautiful view on the valley). Food is delicious, and they accomodate groups and kids. To me, as a skier, the only downside was the need to walk up the street through the parking to reach the ski lifts, but I understand there isn't much the hotel can do about it.
We stayed 24th to 31st April 2018, as a couple.
The resort was great, skiing was superb and whole holiday lovely.
The hotel is excellent, with only a few slight negatives.
We stayed on the 6th floor, room 608 which was a junior suite and we can't fault it. Was well furnished, def to 4* and cleaned daily. The finish is very good and its homely and welcoming.
The staff at the hotel are really friendly, helpful and conscientious. They made our stay even better.
The food - on an evening we only ate the fixed half-board and it was simply outstanding. I mean really excellent, 5 courses. Soup, then two options starters and mains, followed by dessert and then cheese board. We could not fault one plate.
We did not eat off the rest of the menu, but people seems to eat a LOT of melted cheese.
Breakfast is a substantial buffet, same menu daily, but everything you'd expect, fruit, cereal, hot food, fresh bread etc. One comment, the plates are cold. So if you get warm food, its almost cold by the time you return to your table.
HOTEL - warm up some plates! I started putting my hot food on my toast to insulate it lol. Small point but worth mentioning.
The maitre de was great, helpful with questions, and offered us a complimentary digestif on two occasions. Nice guy.
House wine was good, we drank it most nights.
Note the bar prices are def hotel ones.
The lounge area is again welcoming, bar staff friendly. Lots of noise but its a family ski resort hotel so you hope so. The place was full of buzz, energy and rosy faces, just as it should be. Lots of kids milling about, again no issue, families enjoying time together.
Ski room and shop is on the ground floor -1, you get a huge locker per room and the hire shop was open, available and staffed full hours. Very helpful guy Anthony in there.
One comment, lockers are not warmed, so we took boots to our room each night to put near the radiator.
Location - There is a short walk, 5 mins max to the slopes and I saw another review complain, come on! 5 mins warm-up walk, that's it! Was fine. Look at the view from the dining room, that's the price you pay for location, the view is incredible.
All in all, excellent, minor points to make and overall 99% superb.
Would I return? Definitely and already planning for New Year 2018.
Thank you Pic Blanc for helping make an amazing ski holiday.
I have been skiing in Alpe d'Huez for over 20 years and love the area. The last 5 years we have stayed at the Pic Blanc and have always found the staff friendly and helpful, from the cleaning staff through to the waiters, receptionists and managers.
The last stay for 7 days was no exception, whilst the presence of a large group of skiers from another country was difficult due to their arrogant behaviour, the staff could not have done more to make our stay special.
The food is always good and plentiful although after 7 nights of 5 course meals I am now on a stricter regime! The rooms looking across the valley are large and comfortable and cleaned daily. The bar area is good and the restaurant has the same beautiful view as the bedrooms.
The jacuzzi is good but it is a bit disappointing that it costs 15 euros a person so we did not use it this year. We hire skis for my wife from 'Nevada Sports' up in Bergers right next to the slopes where we can store skis and boots saving the trek across the car park with equipment.
On arrival at The Pic Blanc there was a very large party who arrived just before us. I thought it was going to take a long time to deal with them before us, but the reception staff were very efficient and dealt with them quickly. The reception staff were very welcoming and their english was excellent (my french is limited!).
We had a family room that overlooked the valley whilst others in our party, had rooms that faced onto the slopes and lifts. The rooms were perfect for our requirements - nice bed, a decent sofa bed in the family room and lovely shower. They were cleaned daily as were the communal areas. The cleaning staff were always very pleasant and cheerful.
Having the ski fit in the basement of the hotel next to the ski lockers was fabulous. Despite some of us having our own equipment it was still so nice to be able to collect our equipment and then put it straight into our lockers. We did not have to wait around at all. On the 2nd morning my husband had some problems with his own boots so we decided to hire some and having it right there meant we did not waste any time getting onto the slopes. The gentlemen who served us was very helpful and had good English. Having skied in many resorts, this was the best ski fit shop I have ever used.
The bar staff were very friendly and served us quickly. There was plenty of room to sit in the bar area and it had a lovely atmosphere.
The evening meals were very good, having a selection of meats and fish every night. Having a 6 year old with us, the children's buffet was beneficial as he could choose what he wanted every night. The waiters and waitresses were very helpful, translating the menu for us every night. The self service breakfast was varied and plentiful, providing everything you would expect for breakfast. On our departure morning we were due to be picked up at 7.10am, however we were allowed to go into breakfast earlier (breakfast usually starts at 7am).
Having the swimming pool was a bonus as our son loves swimming. No-one in our party used the Spa facilities but it was nice knowing it was there if we wanted to.
The location of the hotel was perfect for us. We needed to get our son skiing on the easy greens in the Bergers area and Ski school was also conveniently located there. We decided to get him 2 private lessons at 74 euros each, but that was the best money we spent. By using the Rifnel Express, The Jeux and The Signal lifts, our son could access so many more slopes due to the system of having a chair and gondola lift combined. It was a little walk to and from the hotel to the bottom of the Bergers area but our 6 year old coped with it.
Overall, I cannot fault the quality of the hotel itself and all the staff who were very helpful and friendly. The hotel is very family friendly. If you are wanting a hotel that makes you feel welcome with or without children then the Pic Blanc is ideal. Having a 6 year old with us, we found it perfect in every way. We will be returning.
When you want a hotel in Alpe D'huez this is a very nice hotel . The room the bar the sauna the food the people of the hotel they are aal good en very nice. You can also hire your skis in the hotel for a good price.
